LED Headlight for 919...Need suggestions.

Hey Guys.
I want to blind the drivers on the road with my headlight so they know I'm coming and I want to do it with an LED headlight. Any suggestions on brands and where to get one?
Of course I want to keep this cheap as possible...under $100.

The more specific the better.

Appreciate any help.
Thanks

Have you tried searching? Several topics on this already that are very informational and helpful.

However, if you want to blind drivers, just get a HID bulb and install it in your 919 headlight. Voila, glare galore!

Honestly, there are various LED upgrades but I've seen something nice come up the other day:

H4 Philips LED Headlight Review | H4 LED kit Review | 12953BWX2

This is the latest LED technology. Instead of just putting a random LED on a H4 base, they made sure to keep the original halogen flament location and shape on the LED themselves.

This means the light output pattern will be just like OEM but brighter.

If you want to use a cheap alternative, those would be the bulbs you're looking for.

Various vendors will sell the same bulb but the driver itself will be different. The phillips version uses a separate driver that would fit better in the headlight bucket of a 919. You simply mount the driver outside of the headlight bucket

They are now $249 H4 Philips X-treme Ultinon LED Bulb | 12953BWX2 but with the 15% off promo code they cost $211

Since you only need 1 bulb, you could team up with a member here and split the kit.

You can probably find them cheaper too.

Are you going for better nighttime visibility or front profile to make sure cars don't hit you head on? Auxillary lights will help do both. Here are some cheap ones I found through Google.
